Hi there,

Hope I have picked the right place to post! We just wanted to share our Lego Land Rover that we have submitted to Lego Ideas website. If we can get 10,000 supporters then Lego will consider it as a product. We thought it is a great tribute to Land Rover and the series model. We went to The Great British Land Rover Show in Donington and feedback was great! Land Rover Monthly magazine have recently featured an article on our project. So have a look and if you like it please use the link and register on Lego Ideas and then press support, it only takes 5 minutes! Feedback is welcome ?

Thank you Si, we really appreciate your support. We have loved making it (most of the time! :) ) and just think it would be fantastic for my 10 year old son to see something on the shelf in the Lego Shop that he could think "I made that". We can but dream!

Thats actually one of the best ones Ive seen. No one seems able to get the headlights correct. Good job. :D

As simonr said with a few specialist bricks it could be excellent; give the wingtops a curved corner, get the hard top fitting nicely and possibly adjust the windscreen a bit.

I also love that its a separate chassis.

Have you got instructions made up for all of us?

Registered and supported...I am just down the road from Billund today (the home of Lego) so would have been rude not to!!

Thank you we appreciate your support!

Hi Snailracer,

There is an update coming shortly, just waiting for Lego bricks to arrive in the right colour. Appreciate your comments. Will try and do instructions and brick list once design is finalised but main priority is getting it publicised to get those supporters!

Some nice details like the centre of the wheels, the fuel filler, the PTO hole etc and doesn't look too complicated for people to buy and build. I like the lack of special bricks, I don't like how lego have gone down this route and the fact that it is instantly recognisable as both a land rover and lego is great. good luck :)

Great comment, thank you very much. Just what we hoped to achieve. :)

Just an update - we have over 5,300 supporters now so support is still growing. We went to Lymm Historic Motor Show at the weekend and met lots of great people, hopefully a few more supporters! ?

Here is a photo of our set up, hope you like it! Next show is Bricktastic Lego Show in Manchester this weekend!

Please support us if you haven't already! ?
